NEWS: The Bulls have sent an SOS to one of their Springboks to join them in Scotland ahead of their Round Four match against Edinburgh on Saturday.

Springbok flyhalf Morne Steyn is on his way to the United Kingdom to bolster the Pretoria side’s flyhalf stocks.

Johan Goosen suffered what appeared to be a knee ligament injury early in his team’s 29-19 win over Cardiff Blues this past weekend.

Replacement flyhalf Chris Smith kicked 19 points in a comeback win for the Bulls after they were 3-16 down at half-time.

White said Goosen was “fearing the worst” after picking up the injury, which could keep on the sidelined for a lengthy period.

Saturday’s match against Edinburgh will be the Bulls’ last on their first tour in this season’s inaugural United Rugby Championship.

Steyn recently returned to South Africa after the Springboks’ overseas leg of the Rugby Championship.

The 37-year-old, who kicked the winning points in the third Test against the British and Irish Lions in August, didn’t feature in matches against Australia and New Zealand.
